“We lie together. Smiling and holding on to each other and the night and the moment. We stare into each other’s eyes and softly kiss, speaking and saying more with the movement of our lips and the tips of our fingers, more than words will allows us to say. Words can’t say this. The one word love means too little for what it is. It means everything and that is still not enough. It doesn’t communicate even a fraction of the feelings involved. Love. The word is not enough for what it is. Love. Love.” — A Little Million Pieces, James Frey.
“in my opinion love is not being able to be with the person you love for over a year because you live in separate countries across the world, but they’re still on your mind all the time. love is when you wake up and you wonder what he’s doing because in his time zone it’s already afternoon. during the day you go to school, you talk to people and once in a while when you just stop to think he’s on your mind and you wonder what he’s doing, and if he’s having fun! after you get home from school or work you relax, and go on the computer..you realize that today you missed him a lot, and you miss not being able to talk to him daily anymore, so you begin to facebook stalk him. you check if he’s been on recently, you then begin to miss him a lot so you start looking at your skype conversations, and you read the jokes and you read the things that you promised each other for next time when you were to meet. you then remember the letter he sent you, and you read it and you cry and by the time that’s done your calling yourself stupid because you think after a year you would be over a boy you had only known for two weeks..but now you think that maybe there’s a slight chance that you’re in love with him..and then you go to bed and he’s on your mind and you think about what could be if you lived in the same country. then the day repeats itself and you just wait till he comes online so you can finally talk … that’s love.” — Anonymous

“Each day I wondered what would happen next. What happens when you stop wanting, when you are happy. I supposed I would go on being happy forever. I knew I would not mess things up by growing bored. I had done that once before.” — “Making Love in 2003” in No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July
“There’s nothing like a song about lost love to remind you how everything precious can slip from the hinges where you’ve hung it so careful.” ~ The Secret Life of Bees
“To be in love is merely to be in a state of perpetual anesthesia: To mistake an ordinary young man for a Greek god, or an ordinary young woman for a goddess.” — H.L. MENCKEN
“Even more, I had never meant to love him. One thing I truly knew, knew it in the pit of my stomach, in the center of my bones, knew it from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, knew it deep in my empty chest - was how love gave someone the power to break you.” - poeticheartache
“I’m likely to lose respect for those I can fool too easily. Don’t let me take advantage of you or exploit you in any way. Love cannot exist for long without the dimension of justice” — A Beautiful Boy by David Sheff, discussing a drug-rehab center’s guidelines
“You want to know what makes me love you more than I loved him? It’s because when he got me, I was perfectly unused. I was fearless, and a hopeless romantic. When you got me I was bruised and battered. I was afraid of the world and cynical about love. And yet, you didn’t leave.” - poeticheartache
“Love is not a feeling, it’s an ability.” — Dan In Real Life, 2009
“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only what you are expecting to give — which is everything. What you will receive in return varies. But it really has no connection with what you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving.” — Katharine Hepburn
